Fires on the Yucatan Peninsula cast a pall of smoke over the Gulf of Mexico on May 8, 2006, veiling its dark blue waters with a dingy white haze. The fires have been marked with red in this photo-like image, taken by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer ( modis.gsfc.nasa.gov MODIS ) on NASA's aqua.nasa.gov/ Aqua satellite. Although a dense cluster of fires on the eastern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula is producing a thick cloud of smoke, much of the haze appears to be coming from fire...

[image]Dust Plumes off Libya: Image of the Day - NASA -- NASA Image Of The Day
Two-toned dust plumes blew northward off the coast of Libya on October 26, 2007, as the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer modis.gsfc.nasa.gov (MODIS) on NASA's terra.nasa.gov/ Terra satellite took this picture. While plumes in the west are beige, reminiscent of the Sahara's sands, the plumes in the east are distinctly darker. The differences in color can be traced to the plumes's varied origins...
